Good morning Arsenal fans
Arsenal have 11 players on their transfer list before the summer, with two new strikers at the top of the list.
Real Sociedad’s Alexander Isak and Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin are at the top of that list, according to the Evening Standard, who also report interest in Lille’s Jonathan David and Benfica star Darwin Nunez.
Southampton loanee Armando Broja, who belongs to Chelsea, Leicester star Youri Tielemans and Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz are also being watched.
Wolves’ Ruben Neves could also face a transfer war between the North Londoners and Manchester United, although Barcelona are looking to lure him to Spain.
Villa wonderkid Carney Chukwuemeka and Palmeiras’ Danilo have also impressed coach Mikel Arteta.
Arsenal are also hoping to attract another youngster, Middlesbrough’s Djed Spence, who is on loan at Nottingham Forest.
Meanwhile, Juventus are keeping an eye on Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette, who will become a free agent in June.
That’s according to Calciomercato, who report that Juve are open to bringing in Lacazette on a free transfer when his Arsenal contract expires this summer.
The Bianconeri beat the Gunners to Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic in January.
Arsenal will need to sign a striker after losing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Barcelona, while Eddie Nketiah’s contract also expires in June.
And Roma are said to still be hungry to sign Granit Xhaka from the Gunners as Jose Mourinho ramps up interest in the midfielder.
The Switzerland international was keen to link up with the Giallorossi last year, but a move failed to materialize after the two clubs failed to agree on a fee.
According to Calciomercato, Mourinho is still desperate to secure the 29-year-old’s services.
They claim that the former Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham manager’s interest in the former Borussia Monchengladbach captain has never gone away.
Ultimately, Arsenal transfer target Lautaro Martinez will stay at Inter Milan beyond next summer.
That’s according to Lautaro’s agent, Alejando Camano, who insists his client and family are so happy at Inter that it is “unlikely” that he will leave.
Camano told Calciomercato: “He is staying at Inter. Lautaro has a five-year contract with Inter, he feels like an Interista.
“Inter is the team in his heart. He feels like an extra fan on the pitch.
“His family is also very happy at Milan. I can say with certainty: there is no possibility that Lautaro will leave Inter. He is very interested in winning with this club.”
